Top 10 wines in the US press

Sancerre Les Baronnes Henri Bourgeois, Loire, France

presentationThis “crisp and beautiful” Sancerre from the Loire was recommended by Michele Parente writing in the San Diegeo Tribune.

“A few years ago, The Wall Street Journal called Sancerre “wine’s Tom Hanks,” because everyone loves it”, she wrote. “o me, it’s more like the Goldilocks of Sauvignon Blancs — not as soft as many California bottlings, not as sharp as a typical one from New Zealand.”

Of this example, she said: “The 2014 Les Baronnes from prestigious Sancerre producer Henri Bourgeoise is a perfect balance of fruit and minerality, with classic aromas of fresh-cut grass and green apple and citrus flavors and lively acidity in the mouth. Herbaceous, with a lemony zing, it’s a versatile crowd pleaser that goes well with goat cheese and types of fish.

“Play your own Goldilocks parlor game by comparing a Sancerre with a Napa fumé blanc and New Zealand sauvignon blanc from Marlborough and see which is just right for you.”

Price: $19.95 to $23.99
